Zahra tragically lost her life in in 2010 at the Adelaide Convention Centre when her husband stabbed her to death in front of 300 people.
At the time Zahra was celebrating the Persian New Year and her 44th birthday with friends. She had left her husband the year before, after enduring much pain and abuse throughout her marriage.
Thanks to the assistance of the Central Domestic Violence Services she had been able to leave and go into hiding with her three children. She remained positive and had started to re-build her life before it was tragically taken.
Beyond Bank Australia proudly supports the foundation. The foundation aims to assist women who have been threatened and abused in the hands of their partners. And mothers that want to save their children from violent homes.
The goal of the foundation is to empower these women to stand on their own feet. This foundation will also be a tribute to women who sadly lost their lives in search for hope of a better life for themselves and their children.
